Are There Any Crystals For Protection? And If So, Which Are The BEST Ones?
Crystals for Protection
One of the things I’m most inspired and guided to work with is creating protection crystal healing kits, for the house and to carry with me. There was a time in my life when I was surrounded by so much negative evil energy, it almost cost my life! It deeply affected me emotionally, mentally and made me become physically sick, really sick.
Sometimes getting away from those malicious people is not enough. If you were in a relationship with one as I was, their energy can get trapped inside you. Especially if you shared intimacy with them. Furthermore, you can become a victim of a psychic attack. Which is one of the most damaging things you can experience, because you may not even be aware of it? You feel tired, without energy, morally down, even depressed! You just feel like there is a dark cloud over your head, and don’t even know how to explain the feeling or understand what is happening to you.
I have personally experienced this until crystals and stones came into my life and I started working with them. There are many crystals that are wonderful to aid you in protecting yourself, your energy field, your aura and your spirit.
I wear them, I have protection crystal grids and altars in my house and especially I have grid my bed. Because when we’re sleeping energetically, in a subconscious way we are more open and vulnerable to psychic attack by other’s energies, evil intentions and negative vibration been redirected at us.
Crystals can be of great help and aid to us. You can have them around your house, office or work space (many times a place filled with much negativity from co-workers or even the boss!) Many of you knows already what I’m talking about because you have experienced it yourself. Others are just beginning to learn about the wonderful world of crystals and their magnificent healing and metaphysical properties. If you landed on this page, or are looking for crystals for protection, there is a bit chance that everything I’m talking so far, ring a bell to you.
Below, I will like to share with you which crystals and stones are the very BEST to protect oneself, our space and homes. I have also created many crystal altars and healing kits using these crystals and stones. Wearing jewelry created with these crystals (you don’t have to wear all at once) is a great way to receive the healing benefits while protecting your energy field.

Black Tourmaline: Black Tourmaline crystal is a powerful stone for protection against negative energy of all kinds… as well as being a strong spiritual grounding stone. This is one of the most popular crystals to be used for metaphysical purposes. Many people and I am amongst this group… believe this is the best protection stone that you can use. Also known as Schorl, it encourages positive attitudes, good luck and happiness, regardless of the circumstances that you find yourself in. They are wonderful aids to both the professional healer and the average person who wants a stone that will be a positive force for good in your life… as it creates a positive attitude and mindset. Having the vibration of Black Tourmaline stone within your aura for as long as possible each day is to your advantage. They will help you to let go of negativity and self-doubts or any feelings of anxiety or negativity of any kind. If it is not possible for you to have them on you during the day, it would be advantageous, to at least have a couple of these stones in the bedroom. Putting one of these crystals under your pillow will cleanse your etheric body while you sleep… as well as the room where you are sleeping. It will strengthen the immune system and assist pain relief of arthritis… and the relief of spinal or muscular problems.

This means it improves the vibration of the air where it is located. Keeping it in the bedroom will help you to sleep better and wake more refreshed. It is powerful for healing and for psychic protection and spiritual purposes… and will strengthen the immune system and help allergies. You all have times when you feel negative, or when you encounter other people who are giving off vibrations that are not pleasing to you. Although wearing stones as jewelry is the easiest way to keep a piece of the stone on your body, if this is not possible keep a piece of the stone in the room with you… as this is very helpful.
Important note about Black Tourmaline: I know that there are stones that send back the negative energy… but this stone will not do that unless it has inclusions of mica in it. Many people are not aware that normal Black Tourmaline simply changes negative energy into positive energy. But if it also contains mica, it will send bad feelings back to the person who sent it, allowing the sender to realize what has occurred. The best stone to use to send negative energy back to where it came from is Fire Agate so you may like to combine these together.
Tourmalinated Quartz: Tourmilated Quartz is clear or white quartz which has pieces of Black Tourmaline within it. These quartz crystals have strong metaphysical properties. They encourage a large amount of light to encircle your body, and this will heal you on many levels. The addition of this light into your being makes these powerful healing crystals. This is because this combination embodies both the energy of Black Tourmaline and the strong vibration of Clear quartz crystals, which amplifies the Tourmaline energy. Just like Black Tourmaline, Tourmalinated quartz stones have a strong spiritual grounding energy as well as being potent psychic protection stones. These stones have a powerful ability to clear your auric field of negativity.

It is also an excellent environmental cleanser as it amplifies the vibration of the Black Tourmaline out into the environment where it is located to transmute any negativity and create positive feelings.

As this stone embodies the energy of both Black Tourmaline and the clear quartz, wearing a Tourmilated Quartz pendant will act as a shield preventing negativity and promoting and amplifying positive energy for increased harmony in your life.
Jet Stone: Jet is commonly used as a stone of protection, yet it also carries some wonderful healing properties, including pain relief for headaches/migraines and enhanced healing of traumatic injuries.

Another facet of the black obsidian identity is its ability to draw in negative energy, thus protecting the wearer or the surroundings in which it is placed.

The powerful alchemical properties of the black obsidian are due to its origin. Obsidian is born out of quickly cooled volcanic lava, so it has the most potent energy of the interaction of several raw and powerful elements – fire, earth, and water. In healing, the black obsidian is used to help one become more grounded, focused and clear in all practical matters. It can also help develop razor-like mental abilities and the powers of discernment. Because the black obsidian expresses a clear, detached energy of truth without “taking any sides”, it can be very helpful for those who tend to react emotionally to people and events in their life.This stone acts to remove any built up negativity caused by your own or others anger, fear, resentment and even stress… as well as aiding you to remove any negative attachments.
